Worded a bit harsh, but basically you're right.

@seb128: Would this actually be possible.
If this bug really doesn't happen to some people, I think it wouldn't be the
right solution to just disable video playback in the browser totally, but if it
really happens to everybody this would be an option.
I don't know wheter video playback (via plugin) is really a major thing in a
broader sense, but most people I know care about this.
It's also relatively hard to look at a video that is embeded somewhere, because
you have to look at the page source and find out the URL of the video and then
download it. IF you manage to do it, because the browser will most likely have
crashed until you can try to, so you might have to disable the plugin first. Not
really user friendly IMHO.
